2007 Ford Interceptor Concept

December 16, 2006

Ford says a new rear-drive, four-door concept sedan will make its world debut at the 2007 Detroit auto show in January.

The concept, dubbed Interceptor, is based on the Mustang’s architecture. But Ford officials were forced to confirm the Interceptor’s Detroit debut after several automotive publications reported a four-door Mustang was in the works. Ford says explicitly that no expanded Mustang line is planned: “Recent media speculation concerning an expanded Mustang line – including a sedan and wagon model to be sold in global markets – is not true. Mustang is an icon and will continue in its current form: a unique, two-door, rear-wheel drive, 2+2 performance car.”


Ford adds that the Interceptor is “not a Mustang” and has no current place in the company’s production plans. However, plans for a rear-drive Ford mid-size sedan have been bubbling up in the company since the successful launch of the Mustang — and a Lincoln version is also said to be in the works.


Ford promises more information on its rear-drive concept December 31, 2006.
